Roger Howarth

Howarth is perhaps best remembered for his Daytime Emmy Award winning portrayal of Todd Manning on the ABC soap opera, One Life to Live, a role he played on-and-off from 1992 to 1995, 1996 to 1998 and from 2000 to 2003. His character's pairing with Kassie DePaiva's Blair Cramer won over many fans and the two became a supercouple.

Howarth was strongly praised for his work on OLTL, and won a Daytime Emmy Award for his work, but subsequent attempts to rehabilitate the rapist character of Todd unnerved Howarth. After a female fan shouted "Rape me, Todd!" at a public appearance, his ambivalence about the role deepened.

When attempts were made to pair Todd and the woman he raped, Marty Saybrooke, as a romantic couple, Howarth quit the show. He subsequently returned to the show twice, but each time, Todd was portrayed more as a villain than a hero.


Currently, he portrays Paul Ryan on CBS's, As the World Turns, a role he has played since 2003.

Howarth's other television credits include brief roles on the series Dawson's Creek and Prey.
